Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Indian power sector has a history of steadily increasing demand for, and chronic shortages of electricity. An adequate power supply contributes to poverty alleviation, yet over 30% of India's population lack access to electricity. Continued shortages significantly constrain commercial and industrial activity and reduce growth. Businesses and manufacturers must utilize more expensive back-up power supplies, often diesel fuel-based, which increase their costs and undercut competitiveness. Insufficient domestic fuel resources and rising international coal and oil prices threaten India's already fragile energy security, such that maximizing, clean indigenous energy sources is a government priority.
Impact Clean energy transmitted to end users in Himachal Pradesh and India increased
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Capacity of HPPTCL to transmit electricity from hydropower generation sources within and outside of Himachal Pradesh and to manage its operations improved.
Progress Toward Outcome Project closed physically. EA is completing balance work from own resources. Final achievement to be measured after balance work completion.
Implementation Progress
